Overindulging this time of year is about as inevitable as a Cher comeback.
So if you’re going to stuff yourself, why not stick with the classics? Jared Nash of NashBaker is offering his take on traditional holiday desserts, which you can pick up at his South San Francisco shop or — if you order enough — have delivered in the city.
If you’ve tried his flaky-as-can-be croissants and pastries at The Summit, you already know he’s got the goods. Turn back time with Yule logs (chestnut or lemon-raspberry), stollen studded with dried fruit, or cookie boxes filled with cocoa meringues, almond tea cakes, and more.
The real showstopper: Nash’s signature pumpkin cheesecake, made with pumpkin puree, sour cream, and spices slow-cooked in a graham cracker crust.
It’ll leave you moonstruck.
